Upgrading and updating hosts in a single remediation operation

This post was originally published on this site

Hello. We have recently upgraded vCenter to v6.5 and we are now upgrading our ESXi hosts from v6.0 to v6.5


Using VUM,  I can perform two remediations, the first to do the upgrade to v6.5 and the second to then install the Critical Host patches. This gets me to ESXi 6.5 P04 Build 15256549.


I believe it is possible to perform both an upgrade and updates in a single remediation operation. I have created a Baseline group containing my Custom ESXi ISO and the Critical Host patches baseline. But when I go through the remediate wizard, the patches shown are for v6.0 and not for v6.5. VUM has scanned the host and seen that some v6.0 patches are required but these cease to be required once the upgrade to v6.5 is performed. Allowing the remediation to run performs the upgrade only.


What I need VUM to do is to perform the upgrade and then scan for missing v6.5 patches and then install those.


Is this possible?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
